Review: Bruno’s Italian Bistro in Morris Plains

Review: Bruno’s Italian Bistro in Morris Plains

Bruno’s Italian Bistro, located on Rt. 10 West, in the former location of Jonathan’s Deli and Café Mozart, opened its doors last summer and already has a following of loyal customers.

According to their website,

“Bruno’s Italian Bistro is a real find—an unassuming, old-fashioned, Italian neighborhood gathering place without pretension or misplaced aspiration.

Bruno’s strives to be your go-to place for delicious Italian cuisine in a casual but elegant rustic setting. At Bruno’s our mission is to make you feel welcomed with great service and to create an atmosphere where memories are made.”

On a recent weeknight, our party of 10 found Bruno’s to meet, and actually exceed, their mission.  We rated both the food and service to be excellent. We were welcomed by the hostess/owner and served by an attentive, professional wait staff throughout the evening. Trying many menu items, from appetizers and salads to meat and seafood entrees, we were all impressed with the quality and freshness of every dish.

The extensive menu is à la carte, so you can expect to pay a little more for a full meal. Appetizers range in price from $8-12; soups, salads & desserts are all around $7; while entrees vary from $17-24. We found the excellent food, pleasant atmosphere and exceptional service to be well worth the cost.

Salad Special: cucumber, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella over baby kale & endive in citrus vinaigrette dressing, $10.95


Veal Parmigiano, $20.95


Bruno’s Shrimp Fra Diavolo, $22.95

Bruno’s is a BYOB that’s very close to home, so you can bring your own favorite beer or wine and enjoy a delightful night out with family or friends.
